DIY: Custom Concert Merchandise

Last week I went to see Tim McGraw on his Two Lanes of Freedom tour. I’m a big fan of Tim’s music, and one song on his new album really got me dancing: TRUCK YEAH!

I absolutely love everything about that song, and I knew that I was going to be really close to Tim McGraw himself since I had floor tickets! I had to do something unique to increase my chances of Tim seeing me, so I decided to make my own Truck Yeah hat!

I started out with a blank hat from Lids and some fabric-friendlly Sharpies, and sketched the design on paper.

I then drew it carefully in pencil on the blank hat, and outlined the pencil marks in blue Sharpie.

Next I filled in the block letters,

And finished off by outlining in orange!

I liked it so much that I made it in another colour too!

So, you’re wondering, was this hat enough to catch Tim McGraw’s attention? YES IT WAS! I showed it to him when he was looking into the crowd and he smiled, pointed and waved at me. TRUCK YEAH!

Check out the pictures I got of Tim McGraw – I was so close to him!
